The former glamour model, who recently suffered a cancer scare after finding a lump in her vocal cords, announced in 2018 she had finally found love again with the Norwegian single mother-of-two.

Samantha recently told OK! magazine that after postponing their initial wedding due to the Covid pandemic, they planned to wait so their loved ones can attend from around the world. 

During the interview, Sam revealed her ‘great mate’ Motörhead lead singer Lemmy – who died in 2015 – had offered to step in and walk her down the aisle after her father died.

Sam’s father Patrick, who managed her career until 1991, died in 2000.

‘I met somebody a couple of months ago and I’m very happy. As you get older life goes so quick.’

She also discussed her sexuality whilst inside the house, and said she hadn’t fallen in love with a woman until she met Myra.

Sam explained: ‘I just believe that love is far greater than anything. You can’t help who you fall in love with.

Sam gave a statement about her sexuality in 2003- the year she embarked on a relationship with Myra- after much speculation.

She said at the time: ‘I have slept with other women but I’ve not been in love before Myra Stratton. People say I’m gay.

‘All I know is that I’m in love with Myra [Stratton, my manager]. I love her completely and want to spend the rest of my life with her.’

Samantha added she had been reluctant to come out because, having already dealt with obsessed stalkers and feared fans’ possible reactions.
